    Theory: It is better to create a new Ignition Casino account rather than transfer one from Bovada

    Reasons:

    1) The "perks" being given to transfer from Bovada to Ignition suck, and are nearly worthless.

    2) Ignition has various "new player" bonuses which seem superior to any "transfer over" bonus, and I assume everyone qualifies for them if they don't have an Ignition account. After all, it's a "new company", right? (Wink wink!)

    3) I am hearing rumblings about possible rakeback on Ignition for new accounts. Don't have the info yet, but I am hearing rumors of this.

    Thoughts?

    Unless things have changed by transferring you get $10 and some mtt ticket which we all know Druff can't wait to play in.

    You can still get $100 poker drop bonus or whatever it is called by making a deposit afterwards on Ignition. The rest of the bonuses last I looked were only for casino games with huge rollovers so they are worthless.

    Most people have reported they don't have to send in verification if they transfer to cashout so that is a big thing too because dealing with these sites with verification is a time consuming pain in the ass sometimes.

    If their truly would be rakeback then that would be a game changer worthy of spending time to verify your account. I doubt this happens knowing they way this network has operated over the years.

    Lol

    I wonder how quickly they will become the same company when someone maxes out 20 stolen credit cards and transfers it all over.

    I've at least used 20 different cards their to deposit lifetime. Including paying girlfriends/friends/brother cash to use their card when like five different banks/card companies blocked me from international purchases and both greendot and netspend shut down my account... Yeah I'm a degen.

    The point is they have never checked card info vs. account info.

    haven't transferred anything over...would it be better to wait and see on this rakeback before making a new account over there or just make a new account right now (don't transfer it over, make a new one) and hope to get placed on rakeback?

    Druffs likely right.. You also can transfer funds directly from Bovada to Ignition (assuming you have the minimum amount to transfer).. I kinda was being a donk as I hadn't played Bovada in awhile.. (Id deposited on Ignition already to get the deposit bonus) Laugh ok yes feel free to laugh.. I have 4.85 on Bovada right now and guess what the minimum to transfer is $5.00.. I sent a message to support saying hey dummies that's great you told me how to send it except I told you before I only have $4.85 in the acct to transfer over.. Imagine how much money these clowns are gonna get for free from folks who cant move said small amounts.. Its free money for them in their pockets at this point if they wont move it for me (which would piss me off). Already having issues trying to login tonight (No problem at any site logging in even Bovada but cant Ignition Poker client to connect keeps giving me an unable to connect error and trying to blame my net connection.. Nothing wrong with my connection its their shitty servers again..)

    Nothing new yet, but I think there is very little downside to simply waiting 'til October 1 and creating a completely new Ignition account.

    The perks for transferring over are very poor, and I have to imagine that new signup bonuses on Ignition will be at least equal, and likely superior. Furthermore, I have received fairly credible info that there will be rakeback for new Ignition accounts if you go through the right affiliates. I am still looking into that, though.

    The only downside I see is having to verify your account again which can be a hassle and if they actually do offer a bigger bonus it will be harder to clear because points are accumulated at about half the rate as Bovada.

    I can also see them offering Ignition redeposit bonuses from time to time just because of it being harder to clear where they might hit some peak wall wanting more people to put money on. That is unless they really want to kill poker altogether which I don't completely think is the case. By offering bitcoin cashouts it barely costs a site money so to just stop an auto pilot raking revenue stream of even a 100k a day would be silly.

    I have heard what druff said, but am thinking about just transferring over anyway, so I dont have to deal with having to verify my account. In the past I have had to do back and forth with them for weeks with my account frozen, while trying to get it verified. I'm not sure if I want to deal with that. It is a huge headache having to deal with bovada's customer support about issues like this.

    Off topic, but I was wondering if you can transfer part of your bovada account balance to ignition, while keeping some on bovada? I'd like to do this so that I can bet sports, and play poker. I emailed bovada asking this question, but they completely ignored my question, while answering other questions that I didn't ask. The people here can surely answer this question easier than bovada support can.

    I wouldn't think it would be an issue.. I moved funds over finally yesterday but there was nothing to force me to move it all just had to be min $5.00.. Other then that parlay with Red Sox and the Under against Baltimore I have used Bovada for Sports in awhile.. The lines are just off too much for my liking compared to some other sites and lines are sometimes not posted till the morning of some games (they were horrible about it last NCAA BB season) so by time Id be able to bet their li ne was skewed compared to my insider info suggestions I got for points/line

    BUMP

    Rakeback or no rakeback, I was right.

    It is October 1 and Ignition has already dropped a much better bonus for new accounts:

    $1000 Casino Bonus
    PLUS
    $1000 Poker Bonus

    You do need to earn 10,000 poker points before releasing all of it, and you need to play it through at the tables 25x ($25,000 worth of poker wagers) before you can withdraw everything.

    https://www.ignitioncasino.eu/promotions/welcome-bonus

    Here is the schedule of bonuses released

    Level Points Bonus Total
    1 15 $5 $5
    2 85 $20 $25
    3 185 $25 $50
    4 400 $50 $100
    5 1,000 $100 $200
    6 2,500 $200 $400
    7 5,000 $250 $650
    8 10,000 $350 $1,000

    7 5,000 $250 $650
    8 10,000 $350 $1,000

    Just logging on to ask about this. So not available to Bovada players doesn't mean those of us who didn't transfer our accounts? I saw on 2+2 they were saying those that transferred didn't get this bonus because they were existing Bovada players. Just new players. Are we new players after 15 years? Lol

    Haven't downloaded yet. Before I open account, no further word on rakeback?

    I did transfer at the very last minute hoping it would get leaked on the website a day or two before about a new bonus. Them fuckers lol. I'd never get in 10k of points in a month though but I know I would clear at least level 6 ($400 total) or 7 ($650) so that sucks but I thought they would wait until the middle of the month or next month to do something like this just to not make it look shady as hell but nope.

    Pretty sure this IS available to Bovada players, provided you didn't transfer your account.

    You can be a "new" player by simply signing up new. Or at least I think that's how it works.

    Sucks that the bonus has to be earned in 30 days, though. I guess they're trying to drum up action.

    LOL Ignition terms of service:

    2.3. Use of the website and associated services are expressly prohibited from the following states: DE, MD, NY, NJ, NV. Any account accessed from a restricted state will have all access rights revoked and any balance contained in the account may be considered void. You are required to notify us immediately should you intend to relocate to or visit a restricted state, your account will then be placed on a temporary hold or permanently closed dependant on the circumstance with any balance available being returned to you. Any attempt on your part to circumvent these restrictions by any means will result in your accounts closure and any balance considered forfeit.
    So be VERY careful playing Ignition when traveling to these states.

    They claim they can close your account and take your money if you play in those states, even if visiting.


    Also, look at this:

    3.7. Your Account will be marked as dormant if you have not made a deposit, a withdrawal or engaged in any gaming activity for a period of 18 months. At 17 months of inactivity, we will send an email notice to the email address on file, advising that your Account balance will be set to zero, 30 days after the notice. If the Account still remains unused following this notice the account balance will be zeroed out.
    So if your account goes dormant for 18 months, they take your money.

    That's some bullshit.

    I'd say if you are gonna wait keep waiting. They have very high guarantee tournaments that will pretty much all overlay starting sunday oct 16.

    Oh good call Druff. I had transfered before this thread. That's 900 extra dollars already. I didn't read your latest update in this thread. I'd still say if they are ever gonna do better than that any time soon it will be before/during this tourney series coming up on there. That's a pretty big bump up already so who knows.
